About the ARA
The Association of Rugby Agents (ARA) is the organisation of individuals and companies engaged in the representation of professional rugby union players in the United Kingdom and Ireland.
The ARA is a non-profit, unincorporated trade body governed by its members under a constitution. It is the only organisation representing rugby agents in the territory.
The aims of the ARA include:
- the maintenance of a code of practice to which all members commit;
- the provision of a forum for discussing and acting on matters affecting all agents;
- and, to provide a collective voice in dealings with third parties (including governing bodies, other professional associations, the media, players, parents/guardians and the public) in matters of common interest.
- The ARA was formally established in 2007, but has acted informally in the interests of most practising agents for a number of years prior to the adoption of a code of practise, constitution, rules of membership and governance.
